that was the lower end of the bound. i said it was likely that it was $115 billion today mr. romney's campaign issued a statement saying, that was accurate. now you saw that on the front page of "the washington post." no. i report for the number one english-language newspaper, the guardian, greatest last story about romney billionaires covered the entire front page of the newspaper and by last story about mr. romney and his billionaires was at the top of the nightly news for bbc television where i'm an investigative reporter. now i know that in case you don't know what investigative reporting is, it's not done here because it's a violation of the patriot act three which is why you haven't seen me on any of the local, the peacock or the foxhole or the eyewall, or even "msnbc" but some of you got that. mr. romney and his money. that is all right as governor romney himself would say. in america we like to celebrate success, and his success is nothing compared to his partners. three billionaires who operate hedge funds, partnered with romney on a takedown of the treasury in the auto bailout. three guys e
republicans. this is a title but it's a lot of attention and thanks to mitt romney and paul ryan and got a lot of attention they literally rush to google after watching the convention and what's the matter with white people. so i want to think sam. [applause] but, you know, a lot of the commentary focused on the nostalgia republicans seem to feel for the golden age. as i describe in my title, and we can say that that is racism or sexism and some of it no doubt is. but i think it's important for us as progressives, those of us here that are progressive i hope we have some republicans, too. i think it's important to think about the golden age was and that there was a golden age for some americans and it coincided with my growing up. i felt like i was the last generation of people to whom the country really kept its promises. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and wor
that deserve to be pay-per-view events. last week's debate between governor romney and the president, you enjoyed that one. tonight's debate between paul ryan and the vice president joe biden should be a lot of fun. and ann versus will be goldberger. i have to say that would be extremely 1-sided in every definition because you wouldn't even hear will be. they would have to be out every response like they did last night on of you. that would be unfair. the entertainment factor aside what welle -- what ann is is truly courageous. willing to use her amazing satirical wit to highlight the most important issues of our day. describes herself as a polemicist who likes to stir the pot and does not pretend to be impartial balance as are broadcasters do. airbag ground has prepared her well. she is a lawyer who graduated with honors from cornell university and graduated university of michigan law school, syndicated columnist, author of eight new york times bestsellers which confirms that they're the only ones who haven't read their books. and demagoguery from -- "mugged: racial demagoguery from the
governor romney and the president, you enjoyed that one. that one was the awesome. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden, that should be a lot of fun. and i would have to say this ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. i do have to say that was an extremely one-sided in every definition of the term because they would have to bleep out every response just like they did on the view so that would be unfair. what ann is really one word, courageous, truly courageous. [applause] she is willing to use her amazing satirical way to highlight the most important issues of our day. and go describes herself as a polemicist who like sister the pot and does not pretend to be impartial or balanced as our broadcasters do. that is a perfect way to describe it and she is a lawyer. she graduated with honors from cornell university and she is also graduate of the university of michigan loft school and syndicated columnist, author of eight "new york times" bestsellers which once again confirms the ladies of the view are the only ones who have not read her book.
with him, we'd be the ones with long faces this week. no, it was how magnificent romney was and first time obama faced a tough opponent. i mean, his whole life he's been, as he says, as long as you don't make fast moves, look calm, white people love you. by his own account, smoking pot at the university, not particularly applying himself, and manages to transfer to the premier universities in america, columbia, and from there, he rockets to harvard law school, and he's instantly president of the harvard law review, he was president for two weeks, and he wins the nobel peace prize? [laughter] this was the first test faced, and he didn't do well, did he? you see that with stacy dash. liberals -- it's as if i wrote in the book, and that you're going to restore their psychological e e quill lib yum, burning with racist words to dump out landing on west, and dash, liberals, i mean, nothing braver in the world than a black conservative. [applause] black people agree with us on policies burks they are harangued and told, racest, racist, rasist. i run through the true history of civil rights. repu
to see. it's only arab allies. or as candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran's only outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elite's, not those sitting in tehran here in denial about basic political trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. by the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown by syrians, the key point is that even a post a sovereign government would not be pro-american or pro-israel. and it may even be less seen on keeping the order with israel quiet. and unless a post assad government were taliban like, serious foreign policy will be just fine for the islamic republic. even more significantly, americans have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that today iran's most important arab ally is not syria. it's iraq, the first shia arab led state in history is iraq, but we never mention that. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact today that for the first time america and one of america's key regional pillars, egypt, is in place strategically. you doesn't mean they have t

for our businesses. mitt romney is going to look at opportunity make sure we do it right. so that's even more extreme than i for before. we have to look at, move on. of our effort to repeal the medical device tax because it would be a burden on our locales but i want to go back and look at the threshold for small business. but what i won't do is to chris collins says, do young people off the parents plan to people with existing conditions would no longer be covered. but don't hold be reopened for seniors in western europe with him of $700 more a year or the prescription drug. we can do better. i put this country can do better. >> mr. collins, did you back say you would support allowing young people to remain on their parents insurance? collins: absolute. that's what ms. hochul distorts my answer's pretty continuously. but i'd also like to point out that she says she's going to vote to repeal this or that, seven and $16 billion cut to medicare and my moms medicare advantage when she talks about the medical device tax, she doesn't like and changing this and that your that is the only reaso
and break the promise to medicare we had to i believe mitt romney has ideas as well. i'm not so my way or the highway that i can't look at people objectively and go with what i think is best to every issue that comes before me, my question will be, what's best for this district. that's how i've operated and i continued to do so as a member of congress next year. >> just to be quick on your voting for president obama? hochul: i've said that before, yes. >> okay. there is another question on the floor. other congresswoman to mr. koh, if you will. hochul: chris, i joined mitt romney, president obama, kirsten gillibrand come when the long and many others in full disclosure because i put transparency is important. full disclosure of personal tax return by putting them online so people know where money comes and. you have made my personal finances part of this campaign, fine. i'm open and transparent. but you've said that you don't think the voters could understand him is too complex for them to learn your 25 pages tax return. so why'd you think you should be held to a lower standard than ot
's governor romney becomes president, we're going to have romneycare or we're going to have obamacare, because we need to solve this problem, and we need to solve it immediately. it's a collaborative effort between private, public, state can and local -- state and local government and the federal government. >> moderator: senator hatch? hatch: well, the so-called affordable care act is anything but affordable. 85% of the american people had affordable health insurance and were getting along quite fine. so we've discombobulated the whole country with all kinds of regulations, all kinds of federal intrusions. frankly, we as the state of did better by ourselves. we didn't need the federal government to tell us what to do or how to do it. and, frankly, we have one of the best health care systems right here in utah. we were one of the first states outside of massachusetts themself to have an exchange. now, our exchange would not be acceptable to obamacare, but i've got to tell you this, obamacare's going to lead us down to destruction. there's no way that that isn't going to eat us alive, there's n
if he wants to get deficit reduction out of raising taxes. president romney will go in the opposite direction. now, how do i feel about that? when i was mayor of new york city, i had a city that had a deficit of about $3 billion. we had 10.5% unemployment. we had 1.1 million people on welfare. we were coming to a -- what was described, one of the reasons i got elected. i got elected because the economy was horrible, had 2,000 murders in the two years before i ran for mayor so i got elected at the first republican in 25 years, first one to remain a republican in 50. [laughter] i got legislated with a very, very simple and direct campaign slogan. you can't do any worse. [laughter] tell me how i could make things worse? 3,000 murders? could unemployment go do 15%. maybe instead of 500,000 people moving out, 600,000 move out. give me a shot and let's see what can happen. my predecessor had done what a lot of people who should never be executives do. he appointed a commission to tell them how to straighten out of economy, but the commission was going to report after the election. the com
the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rat
that the democratic campaign hasn't pushed that romney is saying that he will improve the keystone pipeline on his first day in office. this is the dirtiest form of petroleum. its seemed to have a pipeline from alberta to texas. we are not getting this country off of our addiction to oil. it causes cancer and other diseases. we are given an election between two candidates that are both bragging they are going to continue exploring for oil offshore in the gulf and that is absolute treason against posterity. >> host: bill clinton and former president was in minnesota yesterday campaigning for the president. here's what he had to say on the store and climate change. >> was in closely to the candidate said in the debates. in the first debate, the triumph of the moderate mitt romney. you know what he did? he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming in an economically beneficial way. he said you are going to turn back the sea. if we could have done that mr. de. all up and down the east coast there are mayors many of them republican who are being told you've
versus romney, it is obama versus carl rove. and he is in a behind-the-scenes the whole time, and he has put together over $1 billion that will be spent in these last two months. we in new york, here you won't see much of it. it will be spent in the battleground states. and his -- he has become king of the super pacs. when you put together his money with the money that romney has raised and the republican national committee, it's a total of about 1.8 billion. to put that in perspective, in 2008 mccain had 375 million spend. you're going to read see it coming out now. the other thing, i want to fuss about. who is the really. what does he do? he is a political operatives. what does he really due to lack i talked to a couple of sources about that. a dark and terrible beauty about what he does. i had another source, a former cia agent named larry johnson who tell me that the ca could learn an awful lot from carl rove. end of the way he has deniability and all these operations he does. he is both very, very visible. the 70 percent name recognition in the united states up there with just a bee
your tax -- release your tax returns. why is that? to congressman dold, do you believe governor romney should release his returns? schneider: what i think people want to know are included -- >> moderator: doesn't show what you pay in taxes. dold: it does not. that's been reported as well. my wife has her own career. she is a professional. she has clients and competitors. she's not running for congress. i believe my wife has the right to a certain degree of privacy. everything voters want to know -- >> moderator: some would say that they're entitle today transparent is si from a candidate. schneider: i've released my returns. i believe the voters do have a right to transparency, and, frankly, the fact that we don't know what deduction cans were taken, we don't know if taxes were paid on domestic employees, we don't know any of those types of things and i think that, obviously, we know from past history these are some of the things that voters have wanted to know and have tripped up potential -- >> moderator: those are all legitimate or, arguably legitimate -- [inaudible] let me follow u
they are doing in a campaign. >> let's start with campaign coverage. let's start with immediate. mitt romney, 47% and barack obama cling to guns and religion. what was the media coverage like on that? >> this morning i ran the 47% and i asked questions. one is how much depth they get and how many media outlets covered the story and then what was the shelflife? does at last a day, week or month? the guns was relatively short. we talked about it a lot and rummy of course the 47% we still haven't heard the end of that obviously that in about a month, the stories drop off but they get dragged back and either by opponents or they get dragged in by a fence. i'm sure that as we come out of the presidential debate someone will say well i wonder if you are going to respond to that and i wonder if obama is going to ask a question about that. the issue is in my mind which of these gaffes are ones that we have to pay attention to. do they represent a true character flaw? do they represent an incapacity to ask in a way we would like to have them ask or are they just normal things? we all make mistakes. the c
spotlight on colorado with curtis hubbard of the denver post. then a look at how mitt romney and the republicans are campaigning across the state with republican strategist sean tonner, and later an analysis of president obama's strategy. our guest is rick palassio. washington journal is your phone calls, tweets and e-mails live every morning at 7:30 eastern on c-span. >> these are the stories your textbooks left out. their great stories about real people in american history, very important moments that we don't know about. the first pilgrims in america came to, came 50 years before the mayflower sailed. they were french, they made wine, they had the good sense to land in florida in june instead of december in massachusetts, but then they were wiped out by the spanish, but we've completely left out
new territory to him, and he's running against the unconventional candidate remember mitt romney is at the top of the ballot here, and mccain got 60%. you can see romney get 70% in this district, and that raises the threshold of the crossover votes that matheson needs to survive. he's in the game. it's a tossup, but tough to overcome the top of the ticket impact. >> stay out west. nevada, third congressional district. >> nevada, joe heck, congressman, the type of district that the democrats should be challenges to win the majority. it's a suburban las vegas clark county district, places where democrats should be doing well. they are having a tough time. a former leader in the state house, but what's interesting, he has an influential position in the state legislature, the ads talk about the records as a firefighter, not mentioning he's a politician because that label is not one you want to have. right now, heck has the advantage, but if democrats are having a better night than we expect, they would need to do belter in this type of district. >> california is a solid blue state fo
romney and the president, who enjoyed that one? [cheers and applause] that one was awesome. i enjoyed that one. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and the vice president biden, that should be a lot of fun. check in next week. [applause] i would have to see three is ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. [laughter] that's extremely one sided in every definition of the term because you would not hear whoopi beeping out every response like they did last time ann was on "the view" which is unfair. the entertainment factor aside, ann is one word, "courageous," truly courageous, willing to use her amazing wit to highlight important issues of our day and describe herself as a to lem cyst who stirs the pot. her background prepared her well. she's a lawyer. she graduated from honors from cornell, graduate of university michigan law school, a columnist, author of eight "new york times" best sellers, confirming the ladies of "the view" are the only ones who have not read the books, they can't comment on them. "mugged," that book is insightful and i encourage everybody to read
to read a few quotes, most notably president obama and governor romney and the most recent of the first presidential debate on october 3rd. governor romney, every free economy as good regulation. the same time regulation can be excessive. the dodd-frank act had a number of provisions of unintended consequences harmful to the economy. it's kind of reasonable and small banks. i would repeal and replace it. president obama: the reason for such an economic crisis has prompted by reckless behavior on wall street, but he answered it risk. we stepped in and had the toughest reforms on wall street since an 18 piece is that the question is, does anybody out there think we're too much oversight and regulation of wall street? senator warner of virginia, who subalterns crafting, congress never get to write when you look at massive reform legislation the first time through. he directionally had in the area and come back two or three years hence to the corrections legislation. secretary of the treasury, tim geithner and "wall street journal," strong defense of the dodd-frank act, asking to remember
. >> join us later tonight when presidential nominee mitt romney speaks at a campaign rally in jacksonville, florida. >> indiana has made incredible progress for the last few years. the balance budgets during all of those years, we become the fiscal entity and we have a large budget surplus. going to make it possible for us to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for everyone. but john, you decide we pay for things in indiana. when you were speaker for five or six years, indiana with $700 million in debt. we had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would just like to know from my colleagues how we are going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> congressman, if you had spent the last 12 years in indiana, you would know better but it has to be balanced in indiana, according to our constitution. i have balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budget. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. five times, congressman, you voted in the results increase our

media spends more time on what michael jackson had, you know, then what happens with mitt romney. comment. >> that's good. first of all, i'm delighted that you are an avid abc news watcher. that's a good start. listen, people have asked me about where the news is heading and what is happening. it is changing. going back to your cronkite book, to see how much it changed well what it -- walter cronkite was there. it will continue to change and evolve. i continue to watch abc news. not as much as i used to, but i continue to watch it, and there is always material that i think is just great. also things that are different. but one of the points that i really want people to take away from this book, something that i learned at abc news, if you want more substantive news, international news, more play, whatever it is you want more of, you hold it within your power to influence that because no matter who the journalist is, no matter what the news organization is, they all reacts to the audience. they do care. whenever they say, they care whether you're paying attention, and there are gr
governor romney should release his returns class let's start with mr. schneider. schneider: everything that voters want to know about my financial position, what i is have learned and owned and our kids savings accounts are included on a report i filed with the house. that it's been reported in the papers as well. what i said is my wife has her own career. she is a professional and she has employees who work for her and she has competitors. she is not running for congress. my wife has a right to a certain degree of privacy and everything you want to know about my finances are on the report. >> moderator: they are entitled to transparency as a candidate. dold: let me say i've released my returns. my wife is on there as well and i think the voters to have a right to transparency here and frankly the fact that we don't know what was paid in those taxes and we don't don't know what deductions were taken we don't know if taxes were paid on domestic employees. we don't know any of those types of things on these return
romney's getting these now, the nominees of the party are offered intelligence briefings by career cia people. but they're more, they're analytical, what we used to call pee and glean briefings which is one of the many euphemisms from cia days. i'm trying to approach them in my memory because i can't get ahead. but their analytical. they're not operational, they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operations that only, that only happens once the election takes place. once, you know, if it's in the case of a new president, um, obviously if president obama's reelected, then this will not happen. but that's when they get the review of all the ongoing covert action programs. that's when president-elect obama first got his detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. you know, by that time much of it, any reader of "the washington post" and new york times probably had about 85% of it, but that was his first official briefing. that's when, that's when he, that's when presidential candidates typically -- it's a crash course, i guess, is what i'm trying to
romney? all those handsome sons are not going to produce any could spawn? >> they might. they absolutely might, but the trend line is negative, as you know. >> because it is a sense of entitlement. how we serve this devastation. people ask me, and nearly inflexible. well, no. you know lots of men who are flexible. they have been flexible. why are all the men in your book such cut potatoes? you look at this moment in history, and they're is a little bit of region this. menem would need things, that would be fine. at the debt would be better to me admit that anything. terms of the generation spot average people, because when much is handed to you it is difficult to be flexible. >> host: exactly. that is exactly. so what do you do? because, by the way, when in collapse it hurts women and it really hurts children for sure. so this is not a small thing in another you are not gloating over the end of man. i don't think that you are. it's that good. what do you do? >> you hope that men adapt some flexibility and do certain kinds of jobs that they have formally not found to be macho enough. >> h
bush rem rabble cawed the "sexy stuff in the briefings. romney is getting these now the nominee of the party are offered intelligence briefings by career cia people. it they are analytical what we used to briefings which is one of the -- cia days i'm trying to get from my memory. they are analytical. they are not operational. they are not giving a lot of specific details about operation that only happens once the election takes place. once, you know, in the case of a new president obviously president obama was re-elected it will not happen. but that's when they get the review all of the ongoing covert action programs. that's when the president elect president obama goes to the briefings on the enhanced -- "washington post" and "new york times" probably has 85 percent of it. that was the first briefings. that's when the -- that's when presidential candidates it's a crash course i think what i'm trying to say. the incoming national security team has to get briefed up quickly and get be ready to act from literally january 20th on threats. there were threats on january 20th of 2009.
dodd-frank as governor romney has suggested. we ought to repeal dodd-frank and reprays it with those things that are necessary. and i'm afraid that there is very little in this act that is necessary because the financial crisis also in my view was not caused by a lack of regulation. there was plenty of power in the bank regulators to regulate the economy, regulate the way the banks operated and the act actually doesn't give them much more power except to say you must now do this much more stringently. so from my perspective we ought to, we ought to repeal the act, replace it with those things that seem sensible. there should probably be a commission of some kind that takes over the actions of the consumer financial protection bureau but not the single administrator idea that was developed and insulating that person from other kinds of controls by the president or by congress. all those things could go back into a statute but at this point it's probably better for our economy and the growth of the economy to repeal the act. thank you.

's not right that people like mitt romney who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year peace 30 or 14% and effective tax rates while small business people and teachers and firefighters' pay much more. with a balanced approach we can meet this challenge. >> moderator: however, talk about taxes and spending. wilson: this is one of the area's congressman heinrich and i disagree. he is holding the entire staff hostage for a tax increase on the first of january because he wants to increase taxes on the upper brackets. half of the tax returns in those upper brackets are small businesses, the engines of economic growth in america. currency and young did a study last summer and looked at what would be the impact of adjusting taxes the way congressmen heinrich wants to do and we would lose another 4,300 jobs here in new mexico. i think what we need to do is extend all of the tax rates that we have now and go through a yearlong process of the tax simplification. takeout almost all of the exemptions and special provisions, lower the rates and broaden the base and give ourselves a tax code that i

are covered because the act that mitt romney created in that state essentially the affordable care act, president obama is not push the law on that and fighting there will be a lot of states following essentially in that model. stand are you suggesting in mandate? markell: that is what the effort will care act does. >> moderator: we are going to move on to the next topic for the both of you. so, i am going to put this to you. beyond the governor's office there is a lot of chatter about your longevity in this office should you win a second term. everything from the cabinet post to being should there be a shift in delaware's congressional delegation? you have moved into a leadership position at the national governors' association. you have been touted as a leader among body elected officials and you've spoken of the party convention. i know that your opponent is talked about a pledge i don't want to get into the pledge. what i want to know because clearly if you are reelected you are a lame duck by the delaware law you have the four years and that's it. what is your plan beyond the next
that are on the agenda. what about romney administration? what sorts of proposal, if any, have been articulated? >> well, let me make it clear that i did not say that there had been a proposal by the administration. they produced a long awaited white paper in january of 2011. a government solution, he plans solution, or a hybrid solution. i am not being facetious in saying that. so we haven't had a proposal from either side. the mortgage market has changed because of that and i think that the republicans and the administration, as they came in, would want to go more towards a free-market kind of solution without any gse. i would hope that the suggestion that i made and the mortgage bankers association made would be seen as something that both sides could live with, and that it is largely a private capital solution. there is not a freddie or fannie. they're our are capital companies that are competing to have the ability to pay a premium in order to get a government guarantee of their underlying security. i would hope that that would seem is enough of a free-market solution that republicans would be okay
you -- understand that mitt romney suggested we need cuts in the federal government and even suggested fema might be a place to start. >> i just can't respond to that. all i know is i've got a bunch of folks, hundreds that have been working 24/7 for days now and in the foreseeable future and i've got them here and the field working with new jersey and new york and up into new england and west virginia and all of places impacted by this huge natural event and i'm going to focus on making sure they have the support they need to do their jobs and if they do their jobs well it will help everyone with the recovery from this really serious storm so let's focus on what's here and now and what we have to do to get the job done. >> fema isn't going away? >> not at all. i'm sorry but i just don't want to get into responding to the candidate speak. i want to talk about the fact that fema now has become a very agile proactive organization repositioning, things that really have been able to make incorporated response we call it speed and what i say is mass on target to get people in there as quickl
awakening means that iran is going to leave syria. choice candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran soulmate outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elites, not those sitting in tehran who are in denial about basic clinical trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. while the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown returned experience, the key point is that even a post assad government would not be pro-american or pro-israeli and may even be less keen on keeping the border with israel quiet. and unless they posed assad government were taliban like on a serious foreign policy with be just fine for the islamic republic. even more significantly, americans have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that today iran's most important arab ally is not area. it's ironic, the first shia arabs fled state in history. it's iraq, but we never mention not. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact that today for the first time, one of america's key regional pillars, each of them play strategically. it do
